The scene chosen was the one where Jennifer Beals‘ character in the movie sits on a chair and pulls a lever to release gallons of water in a cascade of sexiness.
“We may have overdone it with the water,” said the anchor for the Philadelphia FOX owned station while returning to the morning show set. “We didn’t need that much water.”
Several local stations around the US are asking viewers to pitch in to help the victims of the recent typhoon that hit the Philippines and Vietnam.

Philadelphia CW affiliate WPSG is giving some Drexel University students the chance to show their work to a larger audience.
Saturday night at Midnight EST, the Philadelphia station plans to air the original student-produced sitcom called OFF CAMPUS.
According to the press release, the show is a “lighthearted and honest look at the confusing world that America’s young people face in today’s turbulent economic times..”
Apparently this isn’t just some schlocky college production, OFF CAMPUS has already won two awards from the Mid-Atlantic chapter of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences. This year it won the College Production Award of Excellence and last year the show took home the “Outstanding Achievement in a Student Production” from NATAS. Read more
